Get your glit­ter on this win­ter

Harefield Gazette - - YOUR SAY -

I WOULD like to in­vite read­ers to get their glit­ter on this Christ­mas and help us fight back against menin­gi­tis.

At Menin­gi­tis Now, we’re invit­ing ev­ery­one to hold one of our fes­tive Time 4 Tea fundrais­ers and bring your friends, fam­ily and col­leagues to­gether for a glit­tery party with a pur­pose.

It’s the per­fect ex­cuse to spend time with your loved ones and start the fes­tive sea­son with a sparkle – whilst help­ing to save lives and re­build fu­tures

Of course, it doesn’t get more glit­tery than Strictly Come Danc­ing, which I was for­tu­nate enough to reach the fi­nal of a few years ago.

Why not plan some­thing around an episode of the show in the run up to Christ­mas?

There are lots of other ideas, from in­vi­ta­tions to recipes and dec­o­ra­tions in Menin­gi­tis Now’s free ‘get your glit­ter on’ wel­come pack to make it an easy and fun event to or­gan­ise.

We’ve even found a source of biodegrad­able eco glit­ter for you from our good friends at Eco Glit­ter Fun – so you can do your bit for the planet too.

The se­ri­ous point is that you will be mak­ing a real dif­fer­ence to those at risk of menin­gi­tis and those whose lives have al­ready been changed for­ever be­cause of it.

Money raised will help to fund pre­ven­ta­tive re­search, raise aware­ness and sup­port those af­fected by the dis­ease through Menin­gi­tis Now’s unique range of ser­vices.

I know only too well the mis­ery menin­gi­tis can bring. Thank­fully I made a good re­cov­ery; oth­ers are not so for­tu­nate.

Let’s sparkle this Christ­mas and fight back against menin­gi­tis.
